Lust Have It - July 2012

Yay!!! Finally received my Lust Have It (LHI) this morning! The colour of the bag this month is a vibrant tangerine colour, and inside were 6 products.


1. Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion - Orange Blossom (RRP: $29.95 for 350ml)
Not quite sure what the size of the product received is, as it doesn't say it anywhere on the packaging. I liked the Pure Fiji Body Butter that came in one of my previous BellaBox, so I'm quite excited to use this. Hopefully it being a body lotion, instead of a butter, will still do a great job in moisturizing my dry (and sometimes itchy) winter skin.

2. Tigi Shine Junkie Lip Gloss - full size (RRP: $16.95 for 10.5g)
This lip gloss is the only makeup product in this bag, and I'm quite sad :( I prefer makeup products to skin care and hair care, as I'm just a makeup junkie. I'm also not a big fan of lip glosses as most are sticky, and they don't last as long as my favourite lip products - lip stains. But I will try this out, and maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised!

3. Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub 5ml (RRP: $38.95 for 50ml)
If you've read my other posts about scrubs, you'd know I love gritty scrubs, as I feel like they're doing their job - scrubbing off dead skin cells off my face. I hope this is a gritty scrub, but I won't hold my breath as this is for sensitive skin. The last time I used a scrub for sensitive skin (Avado Sensitives Certified Organic Gel Exfoliant, I was majorly disappointed and gave it to my mum.

4. Avene Gentle Eye Make-up Remover 25ml (RRP: $22.95 for 125ml)
Another travel-sized eye make-up remover to add to my collection! :P The only time I use make-up remover is when I'm cleaning up my eyeliner lines during the application of makeup. I use make-up remover wipes to remove the majority of my make-up at the end of the day before my shower, and have rarely found the need to use an eye make-up remover on top of that. However, having a travel-sized remover is handy for travelling, so I probably won't use this till then... or until I have finished using up my current make-up remover.

5. Matrix Biolage Smoothing Shampoo 50ml (RRP: $29.00 for 500ml)
Matrix is a new brand to me, as I have never used any of their products before. This smoothing shampoo is formulated for dry, unruly hair, which is what I've got! YAY! One con about this product is that it's only for sale at professional salons (stated on the bottle), which may not be ideal for some who don't live close to a salon. However, that being said, you might be able to get it online.


6. Matrix Biolage Smoothing Conditioner 30ml (RRP: $29.00 for 250ml)
This is the conditioner that goes with the shampoo above. It really urks me when conditioners are sold half the size of shampoos! I tend to use up more conditioners than shampoos, and I'm always running out of conditioners!

Anyway, that's all I have received in my LHI bag this month. Comparing this to BellaBox, I'm not as impressed... BellaBox was pretty hard to beat this month. If you were after more full-sized products, this is not a very good bag, as there was only one full-sized product. Similarly, if you are a make-up junkie like I am, this isn't a very impressive bag, as it only had one make-up item. However, I appreciate the amount of effort that Nicci (LHI founder) and her team has put into this bag. Another positive thing about this month's bag is that it is an all-rounder - it has skin care, hair care and make-up products.

What did you get in your LHI bag?

P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already done so!

  1. I got the exact same things as you! I'm pleased to see Avene products, I'm not sure if it was Bellabox or LustHaveIt where I received some Avene samples previously but I love them! The lipgloss is pretty sticky, smells nice though!!

  2. I don't subscribe to Lust Have It but it seems that the products that save the bag this month are the Avene ones! I've always wanted to try a few things from that brand x

  3. I got the same Lust Have It bag, and compared to my first Bellabox this month, it was so disappointing. I am more of a make up junkie and im getting so sick of skincare products!

  5. I'm subscribed to Lust as well so should be getting my package today hopefully but I'm not too excited by these products... The shampoo and conditioner would be good for travelling I guess?

  6. Your lipgloss looks so much nicer than mine.. I got this dark pinky-brown one that I will never use, it's too dark for me. :(
    I am very excited about the Avene however, they are pretty much all I am really excited about this month since I can't really use different shampoos/conditioners. D:
